All of my candles are made with soybeans grown in the USA on farms that have been farmed for generations. No forests or new land is cleared to grow these soybeans. All of my candles are scented with fragrances that are made for candles. My suppliers don't test on animals. None of the fragrances I use in my candles, sow wax melts, and soaps have been tested on animals or contain animal derived ingredients.
